Posted in Uncategorized on February 28, 2011 by ryanjoyce21

3 x 1 mile w/ 6 minutes rest between each. Flat course, strong headwind for first 800m, rain/snowing. Pretty BA conditions. Here are the splits:

5:51
5:36
5:39

Pretty happy about it. Colin also threw down with his first 3 by mile workout ever with splits of 5:54, 5:50, and 6:03!

Swimming PR

Posted in Uncategorized on February 23, 2011 by ryanjoyce21

1:29.7 for 100m today in the pool at the end of a 15 x 100m workout w/o flip turns (for good reason… i can’t do them!). Not setting the world on fire, but for someone who couldn’t break 1:40 a few months ago, I’m thrilled. Now if only I could hold that for 1500m, I’d be all set!
